Had popiah and bits of bread for dinner. Lovely pink and green bread from local bakery store just ‘shout’ my melody and keroppi to me! So here it is…
This is my first melody in pink!
Added a teddy inari sushi too! Cheese cut out made nose and ears.

I used to cook this for my kids breakfast. Tonight, this was my dinner. Boiled udon in sesame oil, dark and light soya sauce. Added boiled tau pok and vegetarian mushroom balls.
The egg yolk was too big and didn’t stay centre so I couldn’t make it into a bear as intended. No space for eyes. Ended with this- a fat pikachu in a bear suit! Haha…
I used these silicones to shape the quail eggs while cooking.
Check out my new squirrel picks! <3!
It's TGIF! Have a great weekend!

I had vegetarian chicken rice today. Made 3 balls of rice and made them into doggies with grapes and nori punch out.
I think I had too much carbs today… burp! should have 2 instead of 3 rice balls, sigh…

200! Bentos or like prepared, photographed and eaten thereafter.
Here’s the 200th and also my first – japanese vegetables curry bento.
In the box – rice, curry, steamed carrot, quail egg, edamame and strawberries. added lettuce and honey tomatoes into curry.
I was holding the halved quail egg undecided what to do, my
son walked by and suggested feet! An ‘Aha’ moment for me because he had not shown any interest in my bento-ing before. I am so proud of his idea.
Happy mid week!

Dinner was the usual steamed stuff and boiled egg with some vegetarian oysters mushroom sauce.
Hello kitty’s ribbon was originally orange. I changed it to red – ‘inspiration’ came while eating strawberries. Think red is nicer, don’t you agree?..added a bouquet (of two) flowers too.
It’s a small bento box… I also had fruits to fill my big stomach!

All food steamed and boiled in a pot for today’s dinner.
In the box – honey tomatoes, steamed veg, carrot, tau pok (nest), noodles and boiled quail eggs.
This is the first time I quartered the tomatoes and made them into flowers. Easy breezy.
I took a while to cut the quail eggs. They are soft when just cooked. Tip : wait and cut when eggs are at room temperature or cooled down.
My kids were eyeing the chicks and they were ‘gone’ the minute I finished taking photos. Left only one for mummy.
It’s been a week since I started preparing bento for dinner. I am hoping the smaller controlled portion will help me to loose some kgs (with some exercise!). Although the weighing scale still show the same weight (sigh…) I do feel lighter and clothes are looser. I shall continue… Gambate!!
Weekend is almost here… yay!

This is the cat that started my love for charaben bento… 3 years ago! I absolutely heart her. She does not have a mouth because she speaks from her heart. Awwww…
In the box, steamed carrot and veg, honey tomatoes, egg and rice.
